What are you waiting for? Get yourself some Peel 'n Stick Baseplates and containers! Read on for more details.



Materials Needed:

  • Creative QT Peel 'n Stick Baseplates - We used one each of the red, yellow, blue, green, pink and purple baseplates (see the full collection here)
  • Six containers with lids - We used Medium Latch Box Clear containers from The Container Store, $4.99 each
  • Sharp craft or utility knife - We used this one
  • Craft mat or chopping board
  • Selection of building bricks - We used LEGOs, but our baseplates are compatible with most major brands, including DUPLO and Mega Bloks




You can take a look at the video to see just how easy it is to cut the baseplates and stick them to the container lids. Be sure to cut against a line of bricks using a sharp knife so that you get a clean break. If you happen to have any sharp edges, use sandpaper or a nail file to smooth them off.



Using your containers:

These awesome containers are dual purpose: they keep building bricks off the floor, and they provide your kids with a surface to build on!



Having your building bricks neatly organized and easily accessible is also a great motivator for collaborative play!


Containers like this are perfect building on-the-go. They can be used at home, in the car, at Grandma's house, or even at a restaurant. What a great screen-free option to keep your kids entertained!



Whether you are building at at home or on-the-go, inside or outside, alone or with a buddy, these rainbow brick containers are sure to brighten up your day! Purchase your Peel 'n Stick Baseplates here to make your own!
